Job Safety Analysis – Job Hazard Analysis

Identifying, eliminating and preventing job hazards in a workplace are key challenges for organizations. According to OSHA, this approach results in fewer worker injuries and illnesses, a safer work environment, more effective work methods, reduced workers’ compensation costs and increased worker productivity.

Enablon Job Safety Analysis (JSA) / Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) allows companies to schedule and perform risk assessments regarding workplace safety, and effectively reduce incidents, accidents and injuries in the workplace. The solution enables them to adopt an efficient approach by performing workplace hazard identifications and assessments in a systematic manner, and for each individual occupational task. With Enablon, businesses can focus on the most critical hazard and safety assessments first and foremost, such as those that are missing or outdated. The Enablon JSA/JHA solution enables businesses to identify job hazards before they occur and eliminate or reduce risks to an acceptable level by putting the right controls into place.

The solution helps to ensure that all jobs and job steps are identified. It allows companies to optimize assessments by performing them for job step categories that group together similar job steps.
